Re: Alcyone (eta Tauri) 5°15' Taurus

Relocated to Portland, I have Alcyone square my MC. I'm not sure I resonate with anything particular about the interpretation.

Re: Dr. Jordan B. Peterson

But since his views on gay parenting aren't based on science, what are they based on?

Preferring society to grant privileges to traditional heterosexual marriage over non-traditional, gay families in spite of scientific is called what?

73 peer reviewed studies disagree that same sex parents disadvantage their children. And not a single study agrees.

Re: Dr. Jordan B. Peterson

As an astrologer or person, I don't know what reason there is to believe that heteronormative parents are better than gay parents. My heteronormative parents were awful, but there wasn't anyone trying to interfere with their parenting on my behalf. The idea that we should be super careful about gay ...

Re: Dr. Jordan B. Peterson

Is easy to say that people over-react to him, because he has an interesting "rational" persona. However, just last month in the US, new policy changes are allowing adoption agencies discriminate against gay couples, and doctors discriminate against trans patients. Those are a direct result of the cu...

Re: Uranus - "Forges ideal from experience of evidence"?

Does it help to contrast it with Neptune? Neptune starts with a fantasy, and then selectively filters reality to reinforce that fantasy. The fantasy itself can be completely delusional. E.g., I want to feel like a pirate, therefore I'm going to wear an eye patch and draw this mustache on my face. I'...

Re: Avi's Transits 2019

I'm back home, and glad to be passed the 3-month Saturn-Venus octile. I noticed that my broken-hearted feelings about my weird, lopsided work romance are over, so that's nice. I now am back to Pluto-Pluto square and Uranus-Neptune octile as my current main long-term aspects. The Uranus transit appea...

Re: Dr. Jordan B. Peterson

He's a darling of young alt-right men right now. At first glance, he appears to be smart and helpful, and talks a lot about Jung in interesting ways. But he espouses a lot of toxic ideas that really boil down to resentment that white men are not as culturally dominant as they have been historically.

Re: Avi's Transits 2019

I see what a romantic fool I've been. Around my coworker's bday, she got distant, and I found out that she got back together with her ex. She didn't have Venus in aspect to me, and so this relationship was primarily a mix of partile Sun-Moon and partile Saturn-MC. It was a genuine contact, but she j...

Re: Miscarriage

I can only imagine how hard it must be for you. My partner had t. Saturn conjunct r. Venus, Pluto, Uranus, on the...

Re: Avi's Transits 2019

I feel like the hours leading up to a Lunar Return can be tense, esp. if the energy is more difficult, as I wait for things to shift. I had been doing ok, but yesterday I felt down, just missing J and sad to be away from her on her bday. I'm curious to see how things shift for her with her actual so...

Re: Solar Return, 2 locations

You mean t. Moon conjunct n. Pluto, right? Yes, thank you. I'm wondering if the same new logic for lunar returns applies here--that natal planets only count if they are partile aspected by a transiting planet, or angular and aspected. So, the aspects would be sorted as follows: Aspects: t. Mercury ...

My Lunar return is coming up at 12:58am, so I'm going to try to interpret with the new information from the Reconsidering SLR Technique thread.

My recommendations to myself are: Realize that you are experiencing fear (Saturn) around love issues (Venus) right now. But you don't need to whine and play the victim. You're not owed anything. You're not doomed. You are just replaying abandonment issues in this context. And so is she. The game is:...

Re: Avi's Transits 2019

So, I've observed that there has been a tendency for me to look at my transits and try to predict "what's going to happen to me" vs "how can I best use this transit to grow". The first approach tends to be self-fulfilling, and fear based. So I'd like to move away from it, and instead try to be pro-a...
